of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better course is to wage the big fight to stand strong over banning assault rifles. even when you know you're not going to get the votes in congress because it is a noble cause. because it is better to lose with grace than to win ugly. because every day the extremists froth about saddam hussein and king obama and impeachment over a rational ban on assault rifles. they make the case to most everyday americans th
-called sequestration legislation. i realize he has to play to his of a. this poor guy could not get sandy relief at the end of the last congress. they finally got through part of it after some local members of his party said do not give any more campaign contributions to republicans until you do. i would like to see the house to some of that. i do not believe i should tell them what to do. we passed a bipartisan farm bill. we worked very hard on it. it passed overwhelmingly. it got to the house they were afraid to even vote one way or another. we passed the violence against women act. how could anyone be in favor of violence against women? it passed overwhelmingly with bipartisan support. he goes to the house, -- it goes to the house, we cannot do anything on this. we passed the sandy relief. they would not take that on. my message is i appreciate it. i like speaker john boehner. we are friends. maybe you might want to get your own house in order before you tell us how to run our. s. he is a longtime friend. i mean that seriously. people would feel a lot better about congress at a whole if theth
is -- a few steps to the right are the truthers who claim the sandy hook shootings were engineered by the government to gain sympathy for gun laws. in this atmosphere, how much can the obama administration really get done on gun safety? >>> also, as president obama prepares for a second term, which way is the democratic party headed? a pragmatic middle of the road alternative to the gop or will it move sharply to the left? >>> you can't be president of the united states for four more years without a couple episodes like this. >> we cannot sustain -- whoops. was that my -- that's all right. all of you know who i am. >> we'll have more of the lighter moments of the first term in the "sideshow." this is "hardball," the place for politics. ng. ring. progresso. your soups are so awesomely delicious my husband and i can't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on your head? can curlers! tomato basil, potato with bacon... we've got a lot of empty cans.

the classroom secure. >> abc 7 news is live with more on this for us. laura? >> before sandy hook this, school district was in the process of installing security cameras on the five campuses. now, they'll take that effort further. doors in the school district will start sporting these. inside wrrx w.a push of the button. >> we want to do what we can to keep our kids safe to signal to the community and to teachers and staff that we need to do our part. >> this move in the wake of the deadly rampage in sandy hook elementary cool. -- school=)ñ. the new handles will replace theqñ current type on some 200 stores that now lock using a key. the cost is about $60,000. parents seem to think it'sñ a common sense approach to beefing up security on campuses that are typically wide open. >> this i gegs makes sense. >> now, it isn't the only school district moving to beef up security down the road n or5q yinda, they're looking at new locks that can be lock;-from the inside n martinez they have that type but have adopted a new policy they remain locked during the school day. >> senator feinstein will inro
. the chief of police at sandy hook said that further legislation was not going to change those types of shootings. he was right on the national television and stated that. i think that is true. if a guy wants to commit that may him, he will find a way whether he steals it, bison on the black market or what ever and he will commit a shooting like that. in the case -- my comment about the concealed carry, if there had been 11 concealed carry on the premises, he could have saved lives or at least made the gentleman focus on something other than the children. host: are you a conceal the carrier? caller: yes. host: why? caller: it is my right until the state. i would rather have that opportunity given a violent circumstance. host: have you ever had reason to pull your gun out? caller: i am retired law enforcement, and i have had my gun drawn on duty. i also have military background and consider myself a rather highly trained in firearms. host: i do not know if he saw the little piece of video was shot with cathy linear talking about the guns in the district and schools and potection. a lo
at sandy hook. joe biden addressed the u.s. conference of mayors just this afternoon. >> in newtown some of those children were riddled with as many -- it's hard to even say it -- 11 bullet holes in a first grader. high capacity magazines in our view are not worth the risk. >> but you try telling that to the congress that would have to pass the legislation. republican responses have already ranged from i don't think so to impeach him. >> the president, he just doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> i'm afraid president obama may have a king complex. >> he's already abused the law enough times that it's just been staggering. the american revolution was all about fighting such a monarchy. >> we want all tools available to use, including that impeachment. >> with that kind of congressional opposition to the president, it was no sweat for nra president david keene to dismiss the president's initiatives as nothing but a grab bag of liberal feel-goodies. >> this is all sort of makes you feel good, but, in fact, it doesn't do much. >> he's confident say
sandy, of tropical storm sandy. they wanted to defend their own territory in terms of politics, but i didn't see anything particularly conspiratorial in any of that. >> no, they're actually trying to save themselves. they've got a bunch of people from very safe districts, and john is right, it would be very hard for democrats to take back the house until after 2020 because all those districts are gerrymandered, and, you know, if you can't take back the house, you certainly can't annihilate the republicans. it was a kind of loopy expression, and i think if john was being honest, he'd say he wouldn't have advised the speaker to say it. >> is victimhood now a republican meme? now republicans are all victims too? i know the democrats are sometimes truly victims, but are you selling the fact, hey, we're getting beat up by these bullies. is this the new thing, complaining, crying? do you think it works politically? >> i think the president's speech on monday did a wonderful thing for republicans. it got them united and fired up. he said nothing that anybody in any red states would say he's
the campaign. those two factors drive this issue down, but something like hurricane sandy, that could be a wake-up call. >> and hurricane sandy cost a lot of money. now, it's tough with all the pork that went in the bills, but we got a $50 billion appropriation that just came to affected states. that cost a lot of money. so might it not, even if we're not really sure what a cut in emissions might do right now to the trajectory of the climate change that we've experienced, mite it not be worth trying to do something about things? whether through carbon monoxide emissio emissions, co2? >> i don't think so. no matter what we do, we're not going to have the impact unless the rest of the world goes along and we're going to drive up koss on people. coal fire plants. 19 just shut down in georgia. do people really want to do things like that nationwide when china, russia, india, brazil aren't going to do them? probably not. long-term, it's probably not going to have an impact. we've had extreme weather in the past. the 1950s had more extreme weather than now. unless people start seeing that it's confor
sandy hook never happens again. would i oppose that executive order or support it? >> we would certainly report supporting threats of violence but that's not what previous administrations have done and it is not what we fear he is going to do. the idea that your doctor would ask you if you have firearms in your house, as part of an examination of your health, is repugnant because you have a right under the second amendment to own firearms legitimately. if the president wants a doctor to report a threat of physical violence, a citizen should do that as well as a doctor. but if what they want doctors to do is what they urged doctors to do in the past which help them demonize firearms by asking their patients if they have guns and implying that owning a gun is a health problem, then we're opposed to it. bill: we'll bring you back. there is a lot more on the executive orders that we need to get to. we'll sort through them one by one. david keane, thank you for your time. >> anytime. bill: a lot of e-mails on this. a lot of tweets on this. hemmer@foxnews.com is the e-mail. on twitter @billhem
, sandy levin. interestingly enough, sandy and i actually share act. sometimes you hear the term, reagan democrats. it was from our county. you have two. you have two very divergent beliefs coming out of a county. but one thing that is a very commonality of think of a county like mccomb, is we have budgets. we pass budgets on time. we balance them. we just think you should have a budget. interestingly enough, just before i came here, before we had our vote series, i was doing something i call congress in the classroom where i was going to call it skype, but it's the new technology as uvo. i talk to all these kids in my district, my part of the county, about things that are going on in congress. i was telling them about this particular piece of legislation that was going to come before the congress tomorrow and tell them that the senate had actually not passed a budget in almost four years. they said, how could that be? isn't there anything you can do to force that? i said, we're going to try tomorrow and it's unfortunate it has to come to that. whatever kind of budget the senate would pa
and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him. he pulled the proposal because conservative republicans said the bill was loaded with pork with projects not related to the storm and they should've gone through the normal appropriations process. a couple days later, he narrowly hung onto his speakership as 10 republicans did not vote for him. now -- and right after that, they ended up passing a hurricane sandy bill. even that only received 49 republican votes. all that as a backdrop, house leaders last week went to williamsburg to figure out the task force on the debt ceiling on the across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester, coming up. also, at the end of march, we have the continuing resolution, because the senate has not passed a full budget and the two chamber is not agree to a budget, but they have been working off a continuing resolution which funds the government for certain amount of time. it will end on march 27. house leaders tried to put

the massacre at sandy hook. do you agree? >> that's probably true. a woman had guns, it wasn't her son that -- i don't know if she ever went through a background check, but the son certainly didn't. he took his mother's guns and killed people. but that doesn't mean having fewer guns around is a better idea. it's that there are people that go through traffic lights. they just run a red light. does that mean we should getid of all traffic lights? no. in a ma crosense, these laws do work. >> and the ridiculist all at the toll of the hour. erin? >> anderson, thank you very much. >>> now our fifth story "outfront." we're going to talk about manti te'o, a victim or a conspirator? the mystery deepens tonight as we learn more about how the notre dame linebacker was supposedly tricked into an online relationship with a woman who did not exist. now, our ted rowlands is "outfront" on the notre dame university campus. ted, a lot of details on this at this point clearly do not add up. first, the timing of when te'o and his supposed girlfriend lennay met, and met in person. what have you learned? >>
gun safety and new polling, shows that the massacre at sandy hook elementary school is boosting broad support for stronger gun laws. a brand new nbc/"wall street journal" poll show asthma jort of americans, that's 56%, think gun control laws should be tightened in this country. in thames of specific gun proposals being considered, there's even wider support requiring background checks on all gun purchases, eliminating the 40% of gun sales that currently get no checks at all has overwhelming support. a "new york times" poll finds 9 in 10 americans support such a law. including 9 in 10 who say there is a gun in their household. a ban on high capacity magazines is backed by more than 6 in 10 and by a majority of gun owning householtz. 53% say they support a ban on semiautomatic weapons and in if youtown, aurora, tucson, or any of the some 90 gun deaths each day weren't enough, there's perhaps a new poster boy for the gun problem in america. his name is richard schmidt, a white supreme sibs with a felony conviction for manslaughter who managed to acquire an arsenal of 18 assault weapons a

from super storm sandy. the midwest dealing with the devastating drought. i mean, is there an area on climate change where republicans can find some common ground with the president and isn't the economic issue on the side of change? >> well, you know, it isn't a matter of arguing whether or not one believes or does not believe in climate change. it really is can he sell these initiatives in this economic environment. by about a two to one margin, people view the issue of energy as an economic issue rather than an environmental issue. so it isn't a matter of arguing whether climate change, if you believe it or not, is about in this economy can he sell that. given the state of the economy, given that families are struggling with cost of living, with energy and utility costs being a key driver of that, i think that will be a tough sell for him beyond his base. >> ladies, more to come on this. thank you so much. >> thank you. >>> also making news this morning, record-breaking snow and freezing temperatures. lake-effect snow is slamming the great lakes. some in the snow belt could have

christie, it is funny because ever since hurricane sandy there has been some conservatives, republicans that haven't been huge fans of chris christie and i wonder how that'll play out over the next few years. is that the way the party goes? or do they go in a completely different direction, do you think? >> be washed in journal article is an interesting point. we need a messenger, but we also need a message livery system. republican parties have been complaining about the mainstream media as if it is going to change because they complain about it. it is what it is. the fact chris christie has been focused on is because all the cameras have been focused on. chris christie said some things i might not agree with, but he's been a fine job as a governo thr of new jersey is a good example. if we have a messenger, we also need a message delivery system. the democrats in the obama campaign, i know some people in the obama campaign, they're able to get messages down to individuals. instead of just complaining about the mainstream media, let's buy some ads, let's buy some infomercials. not even
vote and look at the sandy vote. a microcosm. what you're finding there is john boehner willing to break what is called the hastert rule, which is that to pass measures with majority democrats when they really need to be passed. i have no illusions every bill is going to go down that way. and then with the debt ceiling, same thing. i do think there's some evidence that republicans are saying, you know, in part for public image reasons but maybe in part because of good economic reasons, we can't keep whacking away at the economy like this to please our base we ha. >> it's not about the two parties necessarily shifting their philosophical positions or moving together but more of a practical decision by the house leadership to recognize the limits on what they can accomplish with the majority in the house and the limits in terms of the public support for their position. you know, one of the things, chuck, the president used the campaign to do was to try to lay out in front of the public the competing visions for approaches to economic growth and deficit reduction. he feels like he'
boehner, if he wants to get bipartisan vote as he did on sandy relief, he has to be able to drop the hat, and it's personal changes and institutional changes. >> mr. mayor, you run one of the largest cities in the country, san antonio, texas. what can the president do to help? what do you need? >> the president can do what he has began during his first term. two great examples are to collaborate with agencies in his administration. making the transportation department work with the education department, work with the e.p.a., sustainable communicates, promised neighborhoods. to invest in brain power and education, and also lift up neighborhoods at the same time. and to his credit, he's been more collabrative with mayors, i think than we've seen in a long time. so i have a lot of hope for the second term. >> mayor castro of san antonio, texas, and brother joaquin castro in congress, very kind of you to spend a moment with us. >> great to be here. >> the president will be leaving the capitol shortly. he'll go out the east front where members of the u.s. military have been assembled so that
is hunting down innocent people, which could be them. you think of virginia tech, sandy hook and they are in close proximity. so they are likely to be hunted down in a classroom or bathroom and killed. so they are not aware at that time that this may be a personal altercation and it's going to be resolved. they have to think they may be close to death. >> sad story. all right. we're standing by for the news conference with the sheriff. we'll give the latest. tom fuentes, thank you. >>> other news we're following in washington, the ceremonies and festivities are over. president obama is getting ready to work on his second term agenda. many republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as
